College Junior

Campus Resources: As a part-time student at a community college, I really don't make use of many resources.

College Junior

Overall Experience: Since I already am employed full-time, I have never used any of the schools resources in this area.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've had two exceptional instructors so far at this school, both PhDs. But for the most part, the instructors have been just average or below average in subject knowledge and teaching ability. I've also been unfortunate enough to have one instructor that I considered to be a bad instructor. It was his first semester teaching a class and he decided he wanted to do a hybrid "flipped" class. So the first hour was two hours of instruction crammed into one hour, then the second was more of a tutor/do your homework hour. He had no lesson plan and it was obvious he didn't know very much about the flipped classroom concept. I was very disappointed and ended up dropping the class.

3 College Junior

Student Body: I've noticed a fairly wide range of ages and ethnic backgrounds.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I feel that the amount of homework given in many courses at this school is unacceptably high. Having gone to a major university right out of high school 30 years ago and then going to a community college now, I feel I definitely have enough experience to make a valid comparison. Things have definitely changed! I find that the math classes in particular tend to overload students with homework, while offering a lower quality of instruction in the classroom. As for my particular major, Biological Sciences, I don't feel that I am far enough along in my major's classes to comment.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I have had very good instructors and very bad instructors at this school. I've learned to check for professor "ratings" before signing up for classes, especially more difficult math and sciences courses.

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have not qualified for any financial aid, but I do feel that the tuition is high for a community college. The quality of instruction, in my opinion, is not commensurate with the tuition rates. This is especially true for online courses, which are approximately double the rate for traditional classes.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Of all the courses I have taken, the teachers all really want to help the students. They will not do the work for you, but expect you to do it yourself and will help you if they can. They have all had different teaching styles, but make it fairly easy to understand what is required of us as students. The class sizes are relatively small, (anywhere from 15-25 students) and that makes it easy to have large class discussions, and having all kinds of other associations with the other students, whether about class or about the professor, or about nothing at all. The courses offered are of a wide variety, if you don't mind commuting from one campus to another. I personally don't, and go to only the Centennial campus, which is very good, but the courses offered are all very separated, especially in the higher difficulty ranges. Not many of the more difficult classes are offered on the same days as the less difficult classes.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This is a community college, so naturally we have a variety of people going to this school for various reasons. Not everyone is seeking a degree. As for the employers recruiting on campus, they are not very active in going to all of the regular hangouts for the students and actually seeking the students. I have not checked into the job/internship prospects, or the career center/services center, but from what I know of the rest of it, Pikes Peak Community College does an okay job.

Career Services: I honestly don't know of any post grad services i'm not quite there yet.

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: Pikes Peak Community college is a great place for people who are looking to earn a decent priced college education.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I can only say ok because it gives just the opportunity to achieve an associates

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: class sizes could be a little smaller, professors that date and marry multiple students should be fired.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: some classes are offered at the other end of town I wish they would open up more of them at each campus

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: for students that pay on their own its not very payment friendly
